"Woah! Watch it!" I say as I dodge
the attack from my adversary.
"Shut up!" Benji seethes. "This is

couple of steps to the right and he falls to the ground.
"Why you little..." He hisses at me

"W-why can't you j-just leave me

"Who do you think I am? Some coward

"Gah!" I yell, pausing for a moment
to check the wound. There's blood. It's dripping down my dark

"Stop running away you coward!" he
calls, but I decide not to answer.
I run past a few houses before I
get to the fence. Swiftly I run in the gap and hide behind a
dumpster, you know, just in case.
